Welcome to the Town of Queen Creek! Named “One of America’s Friendliest Cities” by Forbes magazine, Queen Creek has earned recognition and awards on regional, state and national levels. We have a very strong educational system with some of the best public and charter K-12 schools in the state, and the Communiversity that provides students the opportunity to earn two- or four-year degrees from several different institutions at one location. Although we’ve only been incorporated since 1989, Queen Creek has a rich heritage based on small-town values and country friendliness. We like to say the Town of Queen Creek offers “the convenience of the city with the comfort of the country.”
Recognized by the Arizona Republic as one of the fastest growing towns in the nation, and as one of the newest communities in Arizona, Queen Creek is constantly changing and improving for residents. Roads, buildings and other amenities are being completed at a rapid pace and even more is planned as part of the town’s 10-year, $149 million capital improvement plan. New shopping and dining choices are opening every month, and all types of housing are under construction across town. All of this growth allows Queen Creek to provide great opportunities and high-end amenities because the town is always focused on quality development. Through innovative projects, partnerships and visionary planning, Queen Creek is situated to be a competitive location for new business, and is positioned for long-term sustainability.
